The Red Sox were in shambles during last week’s mailbag. This time around, things are much more pleasant in Boston.
The Red Sox have followed up their 3-9 stretch with a five-game winning streak, which includes a three-game sweep of the Twins in Minnesota. Suddenly, Boston looks like the team that started off the season among the American League’s elite, and that has put a stop...
We've posted some pretty wild pitches over the years here on Outside the Boxscore but Red Sox starter Felix Dubront provided us with one for the ages.

JUUUUST A BIT OUTSIDE
MLB.com Red Sox starting pitcher Felix Doubront may have been trying to come inside on the Rays’ Luke Scott. He may have been trying one of those wacky trick pitches that the old-timers whipped out in the black and white blooper reels. Or…or the ball just slipped out of his hands. NESN play-by-play man Don Orsillo called it “not something you see every day.” I wonder...

BOSTON — Felix Doubront gave the Red Sox 5 1/3 innings out of the bullpen on Wednesday. But to say he provided “relief” would be an unfair assessment.
Allen Webster was roughed up in his second major league start. He didn’t make it out of the second inning, and he came away from the game charged with eight earned runs. Webster isn’t the pitcher to be concerned about, though...

on his fastball through five starts this season.
A lot was made of Felix Doubront showing up to Spring Training out of shape and with some soreness in his throwing arm. Here we are nearly three months later and Doubront (and the Red Sox) finally paid the price for his laziness.

may not happen this week or this month, but it will happen....
Felix Doubront allowed six runs against the Rangers, and things could have been a lot worse. The lefty allowed 12 hits in his 3 2/3 innings of work on Friday night, but escaped trouble in the early innings before running into it during a big fourth inning for Texas.
After the game, he discussed a recent dip in his velocity, but didn’t seem all that concerned about it. He brushed...

If this was 2012, Felix Doubront’s outing might have snowballed, and Boston’s bullpen might have been left to pick up the pieces of another short start. Fortunately for the Red Sox, it is no longer 2012.
Doubront kicked off his fourth start of the season in shaky fashion on Saturday. In the first inning, he gave up a hit, walked three, hit a batter and surrendered two runs while...
